CPD Y Rhyl 1879 continue to build a formidable squad as they look to make an instant impression on the domestic scene.

The newly formed club have made some significant waves in terms of player recruitment in recent weeks, with manager Gareth Thomas looking for an instant promotion from the NWCFA Tier 4 (East) Premier Division next season.

His latest signings come with a wealth of experience, with defender Tony Davies agreeing to join the set-up from Flint Town United.

Davies is no stranger to Belle Vue having played for the wound-up Rhyl FC during a standout career that has also seen the defender turn out for Bala Town, Denbigh Town, Ashton United and Marine before helping the Silkmen achieve second place in JD Cymru North last term which resulted in promotion to the top-flight.

Another notable arrival is that of Tyler Joyce, who was part of the old Lilywhites’ Academy before it was disbanded.

This also saw the versatile youngster progress into the first-team environment, and he can operate either in defence or midfield.

The club also confirmed the signing of striker Carl Lamb, who is another who has played for the Lilies’ in previous years.

Thomas now has an embarrassment of riches at his disposal ahead of the club’s inaugural campaign, and a number of other signings are expected before competitive action gets back underway.

The squad are already well into their pre-season training process ahead of the campaign, with the club also seeking investment to purchase Belle Vie from ground owner David Butters.

A valuation of £450,000 has been agreed by all parties, and anyone interested in becoming part of the project should email sponsorship@rhylfc.co.uk.
